Another warm spell hits Calgary

There is a consistent wave of precipitation in our province… just… never here, it seems.

Another low pressure area is going to break out from the Peace Region. It’ll be in Saskatchewan this evening. Central Alberta’s forecast will look nothing like Calgary’s, again. There’s an active wind warning in Hinton right now, for the sake of the cold front pushing through the region (which is driving snow, too).

Southern Alberta has its own climate this week, relative to the month of the year. Westerlies are the name of the game, and with them, warm temperatures and possible pressure-sensitive headaches for the friends and family. The trend is our friend. We get another just like it Tuesday.

Our upper air lilts northerly for Wednesday and Thursday; the result will be a couple of (dare I say) ‘cooler’ days, but these remain seasonal, and benign, and extraordinarily periodic. Before we know it, another rise; Friday’s back to spring warmth. If you’re driving through Balzac today, give ol’ Billy the nod.

Today’s weather pic is one of several dozen that appeared in the inbox from the Friday cloud event – this is an unusual formation that raised a whole lot of questions. Lee air coming off the Rockies doesn’t just hit the ground; it undulates in a wave pattern – there was enough moisture attached to generate clouds at the top of the wave, but as that wind drops away, it evaporates, giving these clouds the impression that they’re standing still.
